**SNIP**

But the Times refuted James’ account, saying she had nothing to do with its articles.

Letitia James proves Public Advocate position is useless

Thank you, Letitia James.

In just two days, the new public advocate’s outrageous behavior has made a slam-dunk case for the argument The Post has been making for decades: The public advocate is New York City’s most useless job — and it ought to be abolished.

Seems like a girl-fight over a doll:
"She's MY prop!"
"No, she's MINE!"
"Daddy Times said I get the attention, not YOU!"
"Well, Daddy DeBlasio is gonna put your Daddy Times outta business someday...'cause he's the MAYor!"

If I may be so bold?

If a democrat's leftoid's lips are moving they are lying!

I call 'em "leftoid" because that covers everything from "liberal" through "progressive" past "communist" right on to "steaming wet cowflop."

What is the point of being a liberal if you cannot lie without penalty?

And "leftoid" is more polite, in civil company than, "shit for brains".
